Flia,[1] also known as fli or flija, is a dish in Albanian cuisine and in Balkan cuisine generally.[2][3] It consists of multiple crepe-like layers brushed with cream and served with sour cream. The name translates to "sacrifice".[4]

March 18 is recognized as "Flia Day" in which families invite their relatives for preparing and eating Flia.[citation needed]

Flija requires very simple ingredients: flour, water, butter, yogurt and salt. The main ingredients (flour, water and salt) are mixed together until they become like pancake batter. Layers of batter are baked using a sač which is a spherical metal lid used for baking.
